Burger King takes direct aim at Wendy’s Baconator with the introduction of the new Bacon King Sandwich.

The Bacon King Sandwich features two ¼ lb savory flame-grilled beef patties, topped with six strips of thick-cut smoked bacon, four slices of melted American cheese, ketchup and creamy mayonnaise all sandwiched between a soft sesame seed bun.

The new permanent menu item is available at participating locations at the suggested price of $5.99 for the sandwich, and $7.99 as a small meal. Prices may vary by location.
